How quickly we went from cool rain to searing hot weather! Mustn’t complain, though…I have to keep telling my little fussy self that!
And the Winner is … so, two of our illustrious customers, who shall remain nameless (although we all know who they are), had a contest to see who could come in to Bizzi’s the most often from January through May. The winner came in 52 times, as compared to the runner-up winner, who came in 49 times. At about twice a week, that’s a lot of salmon, flatbreads, caesar salads, and chicken club sandwiches! And we do love you — and our other customers, many of whom came in nearly as much!
Onward & Upward…
Whew! I can’t believe that Bizzi’s has been open for four years — some days have flown by, and others have crawled with leaden sluggishness. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried (fortunately, the laughs outweigh the tears), and we’ve learned. There are moments we’ll never forget, like the night we ran out of every single crumb of food in the place (that was a tears night)…the time I left out the sugar in the cheesecake (mostly laughs, but I did get to make another cheesecake at midnight)…the time we danced out the door, out on the lawn, and back in to the tune of some great rock and roll (great joy for me — my dancing feet hearted every second). More on that in messages to come.
Saturday is our Anniversary Dinner — make a reservations if you haven’t already! Live music, five courses, optional wine pairing…
Tuesday & Wednesday night we are still pouring a nice red or white wine for $7 (or a well martini — get your Cosmo on!), and we will feature bistro specials all week long.
We are thankful for you every single day — so many friends over the months & years!

We spent Memorial Day weekend insulating and organizing our wine closet — over 600 bottles of good stuff! Also met my exercise requirements hauling nice heavy bottles out and back into the closet (or so I’m telling myself).
Make way for ducklings! We have two (nearly pet) ducks that have been playing in the puddles in our parking lot! If you’ve been ankle-deep in water in your yard, join the club in wondering if your lush spring foliage will give up the ghost to perpetually wet feet. But for those fishermen out there, the area lakes are mostly back to where they need to be — my next door neighbor is happy as a clam dragging his boat out almost every morning. He says they’re nearly jumping into the boat!
This weekend (Friday/Saturday evenings after 5 p.m.), we are serving up Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Breast filled with our own Basil Pesto accompanied by Sweet Potato Mashers and Sauteed Green Beans. That’ll make you forget fish!
Still have room for our Saturday, June 6th Anniversary Dinner — menu’s on our website at www.bizzis.net. It promises to be a fun and delicious evening, and includes Jan Ryberg at his guitar. We will be offering some outstanding wine pairings as well for our group of wine enthusiasts.
May the road rise to meet you….

Great week at Bizzi’s! Friday & Saturday evening, we will be featuring favorites: Cioppino (a classic seafood stew with fresh shrimp, swordfish, mussels, and more) and Fresh Mussels. Delicioso (note my clever handling of Italian)!
It’s Mother’s Day Week, and I love my mother! She’s a pistol, but can’t imagine my life without her (very) firm guidance, unconditional mother-lioning, and protective care. Bottom line: she is simply the best. At Bizzi’s, Wednesday through Saturday night we will be serving up a meal worthy of all Moms out there (Dads, too, and also those who are children of Moms and Dads): Savory Cornbread Stuffed Pork Loin with Maple Butter Glaze, Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms, and Creamed Spinach.
Glass of Red or White Wine or our Featured Martini: Cucumber Gimlet — $7 Tuesday & Wednesday evening.
And if you haven’t, get a reservation for our Fourth Anniversary Dinner celebration to be held on Saturday, June 6th — the menu’s on-line atbizzis.net.
Happy Mother’s Day to you Moms out there!

At least we don’t have to come in two by two! Enough rain already!
